The Spilled Juice Analogy for Technical Debt | Disciplined Agile 2.X

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/06/21

Interesting take on Technical Debt: [WayBackThe Spilled Juice Analogy for Technical Debt | Disciplined Agile 2.X

Not just because of the analogy, but also because of this comment by Ramu Iyer:

Conway’s Law states that software (or the structure of an IT system) mimics and is isomorphic to the organizational-social structure around it. In layman’s terms, a poorly designed software system is a vivid indicator of the underlying pattern of team communication, coordination and cooperation in the software team. Oftentimes, strained social and organizational interactions get in the way of smooth software development and operation. This results in social liabilities during intergroup coordination and accumulates “social debt” within or across one or more communities in a (software) organization. Any suboptimal socio-technical decisions also impact the technical debt of a software system in tandem. Digging one’s “way out of the technical debt pit” also requires the proactive mitigation of social debt around a system.
